♪ >> tom: welcome to "red eye," hello everyone, i am tom shillue. let's check in with the tvs a andy levy this before. >> andy: coming up on the big show, democrats on the house intelligence committee tried to get fbi director james comey to reveal details into the ongoing investigation. plus, a priest, a rabbi, and a man in the trump hat walks into
a bar. the bartender kicks out the man and the funny headgear. researcher says one in four beer drinkers are switching to pot. >> tom: thank you, andy. let's welcome our guests. miss america 2008 and conservative for back political commentary, kirsten haglund. he graduated from harvard. harrison greenbaum. comedian and brooklyn tv host, greg johnson. and i'm so excited, this man is a legend. comedian joe devito. okay, let's start the show. ♪ on monday morning, fbi director james comey testified before congress. as always, he was very
forthcoming. >> i can't answer that, same answer. i'm not going to comment on that. same answer. i don't know what to make of that. i'm not going to comment on that. same answer. i'm trying to be helpful, but i'm not going to answer that. i'm not going to comment on that. same answer. the same answer. the same before. please don't over interpret what i've said, i'm not going to answer. same answer. i don't want to say. i hate the new england patriots. [laughter] >> the weird thing is they were asking every time. >> tom: it wasn't all nonanswers, the director addressed president trump's accusation that obama wiretapped trump tower. >> with respect to the president's tweets about alleged wiretapping directed at him by the prior administration, i have no information that supports those tweets. >> tom: as far trump's team, having to russia's, call he sat
is an ongoing investigation. what was the most interesting about the testimony? >> no comment, no comment. what's really amazing was the fact that he would not acknowledge, confirm, deny anything. whether they were investigating the leaks, which expose a lot of the information, they wouldn't even go there. i think that was a huge red flag. this is just a show, a total show, they usually don't publicize these hearings at all, they don't put them on tv but they did this time. all the senators, first of all, it was great that he had his hair done. it sometimes he has the spikes, the mohawk, his hair was on point, he really went after, he wasn't able to get much affirmation, but it was a show for these guys to say there being serious and going after
him and drooling the sky. it was a show for each of the liberals and conservative constituents. >> tom: a total show. is that what it is, obviously its political theater come up the beyond that, as anything except allowing these people to do grandstanding? >> i wish they were a little more exciting while they were doing it. >> gowdy was really exciting, i got really into his performance. >> he's always good at this stuff. >> just to hear james comey say something like "with respect to the president's tweets." i wake up and i say "imagine if this was really happening close call. what i didn't know is he appears to be 14 feet tall. have you seen when he walks in? he's a gigantic, pretty good for a spy. >> tom: he's tall. he started as a spy and worked his way up. >> another thing i thought was interesting, we are acting like it's odd that russia may have had an interest in our election, everyone has an interest in the u.s. election, just as we have
interest in other people's elections. i think it's because republicans didn't have their password as one, two, three, four, everyone except for the russians probably thought hillary was going to wi win. you and after the democrat because that's what you thought you needed to blackmail. >> tom: that is a great point. one that i have often made over these many months, that the idea that they were hacking the dnc because they were about to elect the next president, hillary clinton. they were after the next president of the united states more than trying to help trump, does not make sense to you? >> as long as there are no follow-up questions, yes. of course you called it. i was in the waiting room of a bank, don't ask to, today. there was a waiting area, this was on tv and people were passed out, this wasn't the most
exciting television, it was exciting when they mention twitter, when imagine the patriots -- by the way, patriots fans bring on that hate. they invite that hate. this is incomplete to me, trump is going to say this is a victory, liberals will say it's a victory because now it's exposed that they are officially investigating any russia versus the 2016 election tie, and it's all interesting how trump uses everything as a distraction. he wants to get away from what was done and why and focus on the leaks. it's like if watergate became less about what is you know and why and more about indicting deep throat. >> the leaks are a huge threat to our national security. >> so is russia's hack of the election. >> tom: wait a second, i don't think, i will be more concerned about people in our own government committing felonies. when, as joe said, the russians have been hacking across the board, into american politics
ever since they had a computer. >> you don't buy the leaks of information by asking a public official to leak more information. his job is to not leak that information. >> tom: go back to what you were talking about. i thought you were going to be productive about your being on protectable right now. >> there asking him to leak information about the ongoing investigation. >> tom: they are asking him to answer questions. they know he's not going to say something. >> he's admitting, they've been doing this investigation since july 2016. he was all hillary emails, talking about that, constantly getting in front of the public to talk about how there was an investigation, reopening an investigation, no mention of that until now. that seems a little biased. >> i want to go on record as a saying i love the new england patriots. >> tom: did you hear the follow-up from comey? he said the reason he said that about the patriots is that they were so effective at what they do. they suffer from excellence or something like that.
>> i didn't understand the context of that. the whole thing was a snooze fast, i sorry. >> if you have a job, why would you deliberately comment on an investigation about the leakers? which deliberately makes your organization looks bad. he said that he would comment on the investigation that they were investigating russia hacking the election but he wasn't going to comment on whether or not they were going after the leakers. of course you're not going to try to sit there before a house committee and make your organization look bad. it's what anyone else would do in that position. >> what if michael flynn has to go under oath and give testimony and answer questions? then it will get really interesting. >> tom: i wouldn't mind that. the more we hear, the better. moving on, they put the live in libation. a new york city cocktail bar refused to serve a customer because he was wearing a certain red hat.
he and some friends stopped at a place called "the happiest hour." according to the lawsuit, a waitress brought him a $15 jalapeno margarita and his buddies at some beers. when they tried to order a second round, a bartender noticed his hat and skipped over them. another service at "i can't believe you would support someone so terrible and you must be as terrible a person." he then told a manager, who told him i i of what i spoke directy to the owner and the owner told me that anyone who supports trump or believes what you believe is not welcome here." they were kicked out. fortunately, around the corner was a more welcoming bar. he >> not the village. that bar was not in the village, definitely. >> that should just be a yelp review. this should not be a national story. >> tom: it became a story because he did file a lawsuit.
what's your deal? >> i find it ironic that a guy who is upset about being, having the freedom to drink wherever he wants is trying to support a candidate who who is worried at the freedom to pete where he wants. >> tom: now you're getting predictable. >> trump and pence both support an act that allows to discriminate against bartenders for their sexuality. you're allowed to say that you will not serve some buddy because you disagree with their morals. >> tom: i don't want to talk about it but i don't think that's what it is, i'm going to invite you back and were going to do a whole segment on it. >> fat lies? >> he called me fat.
>> tom: joe, what do you think of this guy? >> i actually agree with harrison that there is no lawsuit here, he should just get on yelp like the rest of us do. >> he should be doing it for them giving him a jalapeno margarita. >> $15. >> here's what i think, we either to decide that you're either allowed to deny service to someone or you're not. if you disagree with a person's viewpoint and we are not talking about race or some thing like that, we are talking about something a person is expressing, either you're allowed to do that or you're not. personally, if someone comes in wearing a trump hat and you decide that's intolerable to you, if you think that's okay then you can't say that a baker has to write a certain message on a cake. that's denying them service, that's denying service and saying if someone gay comes and you will not make them a cake. that is discrimination, but if
you make someone write something you are making them express viewpoint that is abhorrent to them. i put the statement you don't agree with, i save you're going to say a baker can't do that, you can't say that they can't throw this person out. you can't pick and choose which one you think is reasonable behavior for denying service. >> tom: i think you might be biased. >> they shouldn't be required by law -- if you can make someone leave forming a hats on the net somewhat dim excess of the you don't like on it, you can't force a person to express a viewpoint on a cake. >> tom: you show up at bars wearing this hat and i don't think you ever been thrown out. >> that's so cute. >> tom: johnson, you wanted to get in on this. >> the trial of the century. this is the most b.s. lawsuit, i'm sorry. i think these bartenders have the right to serve whoever they want, at one point it said the bartender served him but he slammed down his drinks, i don't think that's because for a lawsuit.
if i was suing every bartender that treated me poorly i'd be buried in litigation right now. doesn't that sound like a liberal would be suing, not a conservative? >> that's the whole point. trump supporters that get so obsessed with calling people who are two sensitive snowflakes and all of that, which i agree, a lot of people can be way too sensitive which is why the sky is a prime example of a snowflake. seriously, you're spending your hard earned money on this lawsuit, filing a lawsuit cost a lot of money, paying this lawyer, if you look at the photo and the article, the lawyer is posing, holding his jacket, trying to look like a lawyer. this is a total sham, go home, go to a bar that serves you well, do not waste your energy. >> tom: i bet he's trying to give them a taste of their own snowflake medicine. >> he's trolling. >> i think there's a lot to be said for "i'm going to take my business elsewhere." that's the way the system should
function. you are free to take your business across the street. >> he should not have paid $15 for a margarita anyway. go somewhere else. >> bartenders do not talk like that, they don't say things like we don't respect you, they just throw you out. >> it's a new york bar. >> tom: if you want to get around this, you just lie. "you guys have to leave, were out of jalapenos coastal. a connecticut-based marketing company has a unique screening process for job applicants. here's the ceo on "fox & friends." >> i wanted to be able to have individuals work for my country that would fit the culture, not the culture of our company but the culture of our clients, we needed to have people who aren't snowflakes. >> tom: yes, snowflakes need not apply. the owner of silent partner marketing created a snowflake test, to weed out as he puts it "whiny, needy, entitled little brats." [laughter]
i said nothing. what would disqualify for someone from a job? >> what answer would qualify them from a job? >> and answer where you don't of the difference between they're/there/their from a spelling purpose and someone who is not proud to be an american. >> those are so different. >> tom: i'm proud to be an american but definitely guilty of the first thing that he mentioned. it not my finest week. >> it got lots of likes. >> tom: the 30 question survey has lots of questions like "what does america mean to you? what does privilege mean to you? how do you feel about police? how do you feel about guns? and what are your top 25 toby keith song's? i've got 26 at least close call. here's more. >> we work very closely with a lot of police department and you need to be comfortable and willing to support the men and women who serve and protect. >> how do you feel about guns? >> we do a lot of work filming
with guns, i carry a lot of our team and our clients wary do not carry as well, we have very hard-core american company so you have to be comfortable around them. >> tom: a "red eye" has long had a snowflake test for our panelist. here's the first question. what are you a federally ice crystal typically displaying delicate six --" ours is more literal. >> you guys gave me the test at that "you might be a redneck if" that's a different test. >> tom: what do you thing of this, this guy has his clients who are "hard-core american companies." >> i think he's smart because he framed them all in "this is a business reason for that and not just a personal preference was well. it's not just "do you share my values," but things they like to see in the workplace. whether or not but is legitimate is another question, but i think it's more that he did that. you have someone who has to work with law enforcement, you don't want them coming in wearing an nwa hat or something.
it's not going to work in that culture. i'll say this, it's sad that it's come to this in the workplace. i worked in an office and hated everyone i worked with, not for their political views but because someone was eating my yogurt and that made me angry. that made me want to do an open carry. >> tom: did you put a post on it? >> a series of post-its! the only networked was putting poison in it. >> arsenic works every time. >> tom: do you think he can get in trouble for this, he's admitting that he has this litmus test. >> he's got the right to do what he has to do, he's not discriminating on race or gender or anything like that, he's doing what he needs to do for his company and that's fine. the danger he runs into, first of all, i really appreciated the fact that in his article that he wrote, he explained this policy, he said "this refers to all snowflakes no matter their age, this means millennials, baby boomers, gen-xers.
"as a millennial who gets accused of being a spoiled brat, it's nice that people realize that spoiled brat ines goes across generational lines. the danger of this, if you don't go out of your bubble of people that think just like you, what good is not in a company? how do you have innovation, growth, potential insight into different perspectives of people that you want to serve. i actually think that it hurts him from a competitive business perspective, not to have more viewpoints are presented. also he can help those snowflakes grow into beautiful summer leaves. >> tom: harrison, would you pass this test? >> probably not. i do not want to work for a company where they film things that have real guns. what kind of idiot put real guns on a film set? >> tom: what if you have two film -- >> what if you film an action scene -- >> tom: you bring up a good point. >> who has guns with bullets on a film set?
i'm not sure which is the real one, everyone is dead. >> tom: that's a good point. >> i can't follow that. >> what does this guy's company do? >> silent marketing. >> he's all over the news channels. >> i love how you says you have to not misspell they are and you have to carry. those of two main things. >> by the way, question number one -- >> you're watching. >> question number one says "do you use the term snowflake." >> tom: coming up, is it all right to criticize hollywood groupthink? watch everyone respond the same way. and my first book "mean dads for a better america," it's like obamacare, you've got to buy it to find what is in it. go to tomshillue.com to find out how to order. ♪ careful joe, they've got you outnumbered.

germany references. let's save that for when there is a legitimate fascist anti-semite calling for the destruction of the jewish peopl people. let's save it for that. >> smears the press and tries to scapegoat minorities -- >> smearing the press is it different from legitimately building concentration camps. >> tom: he was making eight joking reference to being put on a list, which i think it's proven that he has been. he saying it's worse than ever, even though he is not a trump supporter, he is lumped in with them. >> slack-jawed is the preferred way to read things on slate, you get the most out of it. >> everybody is saying here, he didn't say nancy, he said germany in the 1930s. >> they were empowers in the 1930s, they were democratically elected -- >> i think he makes a good
point, we just talked about a guy getting kicked out of a bar for wearing a hat someone didn't like. if you're conservative in the entertainment into your street, if you think you don't have to learn to keep your mouth shut, that's the case. i feel bad for nazis actual, now everybody is a nazi, i feel left out. >> if a government drove by down the street with a camera on it, you'd be rioting and going to washington, but if it's white with the moji's and google on it, you are waving at it. they are taking pictures of your house. >> tom: does this kind of thing make you nervous? >> he's saying that if the government was doing it, we'd all freak out. but the google people go by and i'm just kind of looking at the car like it's kind of cool. >> that is interesting, it's a broader conversation. there is a time you wouldn't want pictures of your baby out
there like that, but now all of that information is out there. i know tim allen is joking but it's funny to hear someone say he's repressed in hollywood when he made $50 million playing a character named buzz light year. >> he's doing just fine. >> would he be doing better if the nazi's came back? he has so much less competition in comedy. >> broadway, hollywood, there are so many jewish people in broadway and hollywood. >> i kind of wish there were more conservatives in show business to that end, because there would be more combative nature -- >> tom: they're there but they're in the closet, that's what he saying. at this point he doesn't care, there are a lot of people who are past it, they're older, more established. they can't really be blacklisted and those are the only people. >> i think part of this is brought on by people themselves. you perceive that people are going to like them because of

hat is really gay and he would've been protected under sexual orientation. >> tom: >> andy: you would havea better lawyer than his lawyer. they're saying it is part of his creed. he's trying to claim that this wasn't a political thing, it's creed. >> if make america great is a religion, it's called. >> can we agree that that band of socks? >> i like creed.
